AR-15 Potato Cannon

Demolition Ranch does it again.  This is gold.  Possibly even Yukon Gold (get it? :P):

Demolition-Ranch-ENDOhaha damn I knew some genius in the comments would beat me to the idea of creating a wire grid to cut the potato into fries, then firing into hot oil (deep fryer) at a distance.  I hope he does that!

The Creepy Cooter storyline is a huge hit. I’m glad he’s continuing to develop that.

    Holy crap I want one of these can launchers. Can standard 223 brass be reloaded as a blank?

      That’s a really good question… I googled some stuff and It looks like you can according to a bunch of guys.. here’s one:

      In doing 223 blanks I size and prime case as normal. I use between 7 and 8 grains of Red Dot. That gives it a good loud noise and is consistent. I use a C H crimp die to finish it off. Occasionally the shoulder will buckle a bit so I size it a little so it will feed in all semi-auto 223 weapons. Of course you can adjust the powder charge for noise level.


      I don’t know enough about reloading to trust that though.
